Exploring Strategic IT Services? Rancho Cucamonga’s Accent Computer Solutions Discusses the Process
There are many reasons that companies work with an outside provider for strategic IT services. Rancho Cucamonga businesses often have a technology staff of their own, but these employees may not be able to cover the myriad of issues that can happen on a 24/7 basis. Also, the breadth of concerns—server management, hardware, software, and vendor management, among others—often go beyond what one or two technology employees can handle alone.
One of the most important reasons to work with a provider is to get ahead of these issues. When they hire IT services, Rancho Cucamonga businesses have often experienced a major problem already. Their email may have gone down; their server may have crashed; their data may have been corrupted. Whatever the case is, they now recognize how essential it is to plan ahead.
Accent Computer Solutions offers companies strategic IT management. Rancho Cucamonga-based and in business for over thirty years, Accent helps clients with ongoing systems analysis, planning, and implementation. Learn more about we can help you.
Assessing Your Business IT Needs
Most engagements begin with a conversation. Our Technology Consultants speak with the C-level executive who oversees your company’s technology investment. Some businesses do not have a Chief Information Officer (CIO) or similar role, and so we work with the individual who will be guiding the technology process for the company.
In our initial discussions, we’ll talk about the issues your Rancho Cucamonga business is facing and how strategic IT services may be able to solve them. The goal of these talks is to understand your needs and to explore hidden problems that your systems may face. We want to know about all of the potential threats and opportunities so that we can make the biggest impact possible.
Creating the Plan for the Future
After we've gathered this information, we will develop a plan to address each issue. Our strategies start with the most pressing concerns and then look ahead to the future. Typical goals include preventing downtime; expanding capacity as your business grows; integrating third-party software into your processes; and cutting costs with more efficient systems.
You and your company will have a chance to review our plan and to ask questions about our proposal. You’ll find the Accent team to be knowledgeable, accessible, and professional in all of your interactions.
Implementing the Steps
After you have approved the plan, Accent will conduct an on-site review that will include discussions with your key team members. We will also begin the immediate steps outlined in the plan, such as installing hardware, software, or networks for your facility.
A partnership with Accent Computer Solutions is an ongoing relationship. We provide quarterly reviews from our Chief Information Officers (CIOs) and discuss the progress of the strategic plan. These meetings give you a chance to ask about your future business plans and for us to recommend new ways to improve your operations.
